Bio[edit | edit source]

If you can't stop snacking before dinner, Grubsnitch is probably nearby.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Grubsnitch resembles a small boy with tan skin, blue hair tied in a ponytail, and round green eyes. He wears a beige kimono, a green skirt made of leaves, and goes barefoot. He is usually seen drooling in the right side of his mouth.

Personality[edit | edit source]

In the anime, Grubsnitch is a very gluttonous Yo-Kai, choosing to possess humans in order to pass on this trait and satisfy his hunger. When threatened, he does not budge and tries to fight back; however, he admits defeat when overpowered.

His favourite phrase, which is also present when possessing his targets, is "O-tsumami!".

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

Grubsnitch has the ability to possess humans and force them to snatch small snacks of bigger meals, repeating this until the whole meal is devoured. However, a strong enough desire to eat the whole meal (such as the one triggered by Hungramps' possession) can counter it rather easily.

Location[edit | edit source]

In Yo-kai Watch, Grubsnitch can be found in Shopper's Row in bushes everywhere. You can also find Grubsnitch wandering around in some of the abandoned apartments.

History[edit | edit source]

Grubsnitch makes his debut in episode 23, causing Keita's Mother to snatch a small snack of the breakfast; however, he reveals himself when Keita's mother prepares a big dinner for her family. Said Yo-Kai posesses her and causes her to snatch small snacks from the meal. Keita tries to stop his mother from doing so, but to no avail. Keita finally has the idea of summoning Hungramps to force his mother to eat the whole dinner in one step; soon, Hungramps and Grubsnitch start a possession battle with Keita's mother as the host, causing her to be torn between snatching small snacks and devouring the meal in one step. Hungramps finally overpowers Grubsnitch, causing the latter to admit defeat and grant his Yo-kai Medal to Keita.
